Seattle NBC affiliate KING has hired Steve Bunin as a morning anchor.

Starting tomorrow (Wednesday), Bunin will join Joyce Taylor on the 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. weekday newscast.

Bunin last worked at ESPN as an anchor of SportsCenter and College Football Live. He worked in local TV in Michigan, Arizona and New York.

“Having grown up on Mercer Island, Steve understands the uniqueness of the Pacific Northwest and will bring that familiarity along with his anchor experience from across the country to all of our audiences, both TV and digital,” said news director Cheryl Carson.

KING also announced Mimi Jung will join Jake Whittenberg on the KONG 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekday newscast.

“We are also thrilled to announce long time Northwest Cable News (NWCN) anchor Cam Johnson, who anchored morning news on NWCN for over 10 years, will join KING 5 Mornings as our Traffic Reporter,” said Carson. “Cam knows what commuters from all over our region face in the morning as they head out the door. Having someone with her familiarity and history of the Northwest is such a bonus for all of us.”
